The infamous Dakar Rally’s monstrous jaws are chomping for victims. And Oakley’s team rippers have been more than ready to charge at the premiere raid event – taking the truly international stage in efforts to trample adversaries in the treacherous Peruvian desert race. So far, they haven’t disappointed. Raging back into action after missing last year’s race, Oakley’s past champ, Carlos Sainz, emphatically claimed the first stage around Pisco this past Saturday. The result tallied his 25th Dakar stage all-time.
The desert takes no prisoners. And there are few races that smear that fact in your face than the Oakley-backed General Tire Mint 400 Off-Road Championship. Get ready to flick on the tube, because this beast of a contest is dropping in on SPEED TV for the first time on Jan. 5 (2 p.m. Eastern).
